Belparkers kick off Race season in Carlow Tri

The triathlon race season kicked off on Sunday 20th May in Carlow. Carlow Tri is a very popular triathlon which features a 750m swim, a 20km bike ride and a 5km run finishing in the Town Park. The swim is an out and back course, the first 250 metres will be upstream, with the last 500m downstream. The run is an out-and-back along the banks of the River Barrow.

34 Belparkers raced on the day. Jonny Morris & Aoife Reilly were first male & female Belparkers home in a time of 1:04 and 1:19. Jonny was 8th overall on the day. Martin Waldron also put in a very strong performance with a finishing time of 1:05.

Well done to all members, especially our New To Tri group who had fantastic results!

Also a special mention to our young athletes who competed in the All Ireland Post Primary Schools Triathlon. Callum 2nd (minor cat.) & Shane 4th (Junior cat.)
